  3. I'm baffled at some of the comments! Come on Mr this is no English class. Make a valid contribution if u have, one that can enlighten p people and stop about the grammer and all that. First of all I want to say condolences to the family. If this young man is what people are saying, then he was stabbed. and killed doing what he enjoyed. Sadly most people will say he wasn't disrespectful, he was gentle, patient and the good list goes on and on but psycho, killers, people who attack u rob u it is in their nature to be conniving to be charming, helpful etc. Sadly but true their minds working like a timebomb. Finally, i hope they have mercy on the 50 year man. He will be jailed for lesser years most likely.

  4. I know the old man an I also knew Ain. It is really sad that he had to die under these circumstances. At first when I heard it was the girl who killed him I felt sorry for both of them knowing that the girl would have to be jailed and that he died abusing that girl. When I heard it was the old man I was really sorry for the old man because he always got robbed, I met him once with his fave swollen and bruised up and sadly he told me that he was beaten and robbed he also lost a tooth and just knowing the made me mad that now he's gonna be jailed when he defended hisself .... R.I.P Ain you were a person to and I do feel sorry you had to die so but this old man has to live with this for the rest of his life.. Sorry.
